Day 10 of the 2021 Australian Open will showcase the second half of the quarter finals as some of the game’s biggest names return to the court. Here are our best betting tips for Wednesday’s action, with odds courtesy of Sportsbet.com.au.
Australian Open Day 10 men’s betting tips
Andrey Rublev $3.10 vs Daniil Medvedev $1.32
These two Russian competitors are the best from their nation, but only one of them can win this match and advance to the Australian Open semi finals.
Andrey Rublev, ranked no.8 in the world, has had an easier run to the quarter finals than anyone in the tournament, beating three opponents in straight sets before his only top-25 opponent, Casper Ruud, retired in the fourth round.
Daniil Medvedev has enjoyed a similarly smooth passage to the last eight, although Filip Krajinovic made him work for it in the third round. The world no.4 beat Rublev at the 2020 US Open quarter finals in straight sets, which is why we think he will cover our boosted games line here.
Daniil Medvedev -5.5 games
Stefanos Tsitsipas $2.75 vs Rafael Nadal $1.40
Two of the biggest names in the men’s draw will collide in the quarter finals as Stefanos Tsitsipas takes on Rafael Nadal. These two have only faced off once in a Grand Slam – the 2019 Australian Open, where Nadal won in straight sets in the semi finals.
Tsitsipas has improved greatly in the past two years, rising up to world no.6 at just 22 years old, but the young product from Greece will need to bring his A-game to beat Nadal, who is priced at $5 for the title in the latest Australian Open betting markets.
Tsitsipas could have a slight fitness advantage after his fourth-round walkover against Matteo Berrettini, but we still think Nadal will get the chocolates in the end.

Australian Open Day 10 women’s betting tips
Jennifer Brady $1.36 vs Jessica Pegula $2.90
Two Americans will face off in the quarter finals, with world no.24 Jennifer Brady the short-priced favourite to knock out dark horse Jessica Pegula.
Pegula, ranked 61st in the world, advanced to the quarters after beating fifth seed Elina Svitolina in three sets, but that is not her only scalp, as she also outplayed Victoria Azarenka in the first round.
We noted in our last assessment of Pegula that she is clearly having a breakout Grand Slam, and we think she is a very good chance to beat her compatriot. This is one may well go to three sets.
Both players to win a set
Ash Barty $1.16 vs Karolina Muchova $4.60
Not much needs to be said about how well Ash Barty has performed so far at the 2021 Australian Open, as the world no.1 has waltzed into the last eight without dropping a set.
Having knocked out top-20 opponents in the third and fourth rounds, Karolina Muchova is swiftly boosting her stocks this year, but her run will come to an end here.
Barty is the clear favourite for good reason. The Aussie star plays a completely different game to her female counterparts, utilising her assets as often as possible and playing a very tough style. Trust in Barty to make the semi finals without dropping a set.
